Modified on: 2017-05-18 11:45:36 -0400


Overview

Delivery routes makes it easy for you to map out a daily route, prioritize your deliveries based on location, and schedule stops with the more efficient routes. Each shift will require its own delivery route assignments. 


Benefits

Allows the packing report to be run by referencing the delivery routes with the option of Route (sort for delivery) or Route (sort for packing).  Also provides drivers with a delivery report with stop numbers, address details and units shipped.  Drivers have the ability to use the Delivery Report to record odometer readings, scheduled start and end times vs actual start and end times.
